Okay, so me and my Partner were watching television and enjoying our evening when The Talk came on, we decided not to bother to change the channel because the remote was way too far away and we were tired. Besides we didn't think it would be that bad, it may have even been entertaining.
We lasted 10 minutes. What the hell is this crap? The show literally consists of middle aged women talking about sexual promiscuity and scandal. At one point they were talking about how a woman should be and deserves to be the leader in a relationship. Excuse me? I was of the impression that relationships are mutually fulfilling for both people envolved, that there is no leader, you're supposed to share those responsibilities. Not only that, they proceeded to exclaim how right and amazing it is to have sex with your Ex....I mean seriously?
Throughout the whole ordeal I was thinking, what if it was 4 men were talking like this? The bloody show would be boycotted and on every news entertainment show out there. The Men would be considered sexist dirtbags for believing a Woman should be "commanded" by a man. So why are these old "Ladies" (hags) allowed to spout this garbage on television? Why does society have such a double standard towards males and females? The whole show comes off as "We're females and we're so sleezy, tee hee, look at all the things we can get away with, silly men".
I find it really sad and infuriating because I know there are plenty of Feminists and Women out there who simply want workplace and social equality, they wouldn't condone this garbage and exploit this double standard like these Women do.They give them all a bad name.
Yes, this pretty much a rant. I just can't believe we allow this trash on television.
